Radio ad: Tester’s day off

The NRSC went up with a new radio ad in Montana this morning, hammering Senator Tester for failing to show up to work in the Senate.

As threats from ISIS and MS-13 rose, records show Tester skipped 76% of hearings at the Senate Homeland Security Committee, putting America’s national security at risk. But while Tester phoned it in on his work in the Senate, he was working double-time at fundraisers to ensure he took more money from lobbyists than any other member of the Senate.

“Senator Tester made his priorities clear: he’d rather beg lobbyists for cash and hang out in his million-dollar house, than show up to work or keep our country safe,” said NRSC Spokesman Calvin Moore. “No Montana business would never re-hire an employee who skipped work 76% of the time, and Montana voters should treat Jon Tester the same.”

TRANSCRIPT:
